Good traction on and off road.

Good traction on and off road...

Did not have any problems on fresh snow, hard packed ice and snow, smooth as glass lake ice.

I had a rock solid grip on most any wintery surface I came upon.

They run good on dry pavement without too much noise and resistance.

I have been running the poor things for the past month on dry pavement.. they have ejected a

number of studs, I kind of expect this to happen/ I have found cornering to hard will do it. not sure if it is a problem on ice and snow. I will find out next winter for sure.

The studs still have sharp square edges and show no signs of wear.

It's a functional tire and looks good doing it.

These got me back out there in the snow and ice!

I live in Chicagoland and I can usually ride much of our winters. This one became particularly snowy/icy in January and I had to find a safe way to get back out there. These studded tires made the difference. They provide excellent grip on the ice and hard pack snow. These are not a good option for soft snow, fyi; I tried. I was worried about going back and forth between roads and snow/ice and the impact it might have on the stud sharpness and grip. It's only been a couple of months now, but, so far very good on that front. I would recommend these as a way to do some additional outdoor winter riding in otherwise challenging conditions.

Quite good for the purpose

This is my first studded bike tire. I purchased it because I had ridden a couple of times in the early winter on the original mountain bike tire that came on my hard tail and experienced a couple of near slide-outs with my front tire. I decided that it would be an necessary upgrade to invest in a studded tire for my front, to avoid any such slide-out when on sidewalk or anywhere near vehicle traffic. I believe that anyone who rides on sidewalk/pavement in an area that experiences snow/ice should invest in a studded tire. I have found that having the studded tire gives me a boost in confidence when riding through that uncertain conditions of winter. I plan to purchase a second tire, for the rear, in the coming weeks.

Great warm and comfortable

I live in the Midwest, we get snow and lots and lots of cold. I have always had issues keeping my hands and feet warm. I've solved the hand issue last year but my feet still continued to be cold. I purchased these boots after getting a recommendation from a guy I met in northern MN at a mountain bike race. I purchased a size larger given I'd be wearing a liner and wool sock.

I've ridding with these boots 250+ miles so far this winter, from temp in the single digits to the mid 20's. My feet have never been cold in these boots - they are remarkable. I have Crank Brothers egg beaters, the boots work great with them (with the required shim).

100% endorsing these boots!
